In advance of contacting us, please read important information about your rate bill below:

  • you have a legal and civic responsibility to pay your rate bill
  • the money that you pay in rates contributes to the funding of public services
  • public services include council amenities such as recreational facilities, bin collection and tourism
  • it also pays for regional services such as roads, education and healthcare
  • LPS rigorously pursues the recovery of rates. If you do not pay your rates we will take you to court. This will mean:

    2. your credit rating may be affected
    3. this can result in not being able to apply for credit or in some cases being made bankrupt
